Trailer Watch: Mel Gibson in Edge of Darkness

Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is back with Edge of Darkness — and he’s got Mel Gibson acting like a complete bad-ass along with him.

Based on a 1985 British TV show (a six-hour series), the story revolves around a Boston PD homicide detective (Gibson) “whose only grown-up child (Novakovic) is murdered on the steps of his home. The cop unearths his daughter’s secret life and discovers a world of corporate cover-ups and government collusion. Huston takes on the role of a shady businessman while Roberts will play the role of the daughter’s distraught boyfriend.”

Edge of Darkness co-stars Winstone’s Proposition co-star Danny Huston as a slimeball businessman and Bojana Novakovic (Sam Raimi’s recent Drag Me to Hell) as Emma, Gibson’s daughter. The film will be released next year.

    Finally a Gibson movie without a Christ complex — and then he has to say “You have to decide whether you're hangin' on the cross or bangin' in the nails.” You know he got a chubby with that line.

    heh.

    I really enjoyed Apocrypha. Would you say that movie had a Christ complex?

    Er, you meant Apocalypso? I didn't see it, but he has a thing for persecution stories. And torture. Maybe I should revise my statement.

    Apocalypto. But yeah, that one. I'm not awake yet.

    It's a really good, pulpy, dumb chase movie. Fun stuff… if you can get past the torture and persecution stuff in it. ;)
